Contact Kilsa Baganha Dremsa

Kilsa's style of painting is unique and most closely associated with a Picasso—like style of art. Her images are large, sometimes abstract and command attention. Kilsa uses a wonderful palette of colors; she gives attention to complementary colors and uses a range of tints and shades to give a dimensional space to her compositions. Brushstrokes and mixing color on her canvas give movement and liveliness to her painting. Her subject matter is meaningful to her; in many of her paintings, natural phenomena found in her native country are combined with her obvious passion of Brazil.

She often depicts emotional relationships giving color significant symbolism relating to her feelings. All of her paintings are an expression of her life as it unfolds. Kilsa's creative process is one of a meditative quality. Kilsa creates many sketches before her brush touches the canvas. Her technique is focused and deliberate. Usually Kilsa completes a canvas in one sitting. Her signature with an infinity symbol above it designates that the painting is complete.
